Rep. Norcross Announces Service Academy Nominations

Mar 15, 2022
News Release

Today, Congressman Donald Norcross (D-NJ-01), a member of the House Armed Services Committee and father of a veteran, announced and congratulated the region’s 2022 congressional nominees for the United States service academies.

“This years’ nominees are distinguished not just by the fact that they have excelled in academics, leadership, and community service – but that they persevered through two years of a pandemic, which we all know has been hard on our young people and students,” said Congressman Norcross. “It is my honor to nominate these outstanding candidates to the United States service academies. They represent the best of South Jersey and I know they will go on to achieve great things.”

Students wishing to attend the U.S. Naval Academy, U.S. Military Academy, U.S. Air Force Academy, or the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy must receive a nomination from the vice president or their senator or representative. This year, 21 students were selected by Congressman Norcross and a committee of community leaders, active-duty military, veterans, and service academy alumni to receive nominations to the service academies.

Students interested in attending a service academy can learn more on Congressman Norcross’s website.
